Christmastime, tra-la

I have been captivated by the approaching holiday and its lively peace.  I cherish the brilliant golds, sharp crimsons, and vibrant greens that are floating around everywhere making everything sing-song and joyful.  I love how rich everything tastes and how delicately cool and bright the weather is.  I wish Christmastime lasted a little bit longer each year.

This weekend took place in winter wonderland Lake Arrowhead, with tree decorating, instrumental Christmas music, gift exchanging, Nerf wars, Apples to Apples, a jaunty walk and deli-style pizza downtown, homecooked meals and gourmet snacks in between, picture-taking, and jolly-making.

More, please.

I agree; the colors, sounds, and general feeling that permeates the air this time of year is just wonderful. I so enjoyed getting to share it with you for a brief time this weekend. Merry Christmas!
